Happy Frappe Friday!

Every Friday this summer you can get half off any frappe at waves from 4-7pm. I used a mobile bandit coupon for buy one get one half off on top of the half off, so I got two WAVES size Frappes for under $3! :)my favorite is the milk chocolate mocha frappe which is made with ice cream and melted Belgian chocolate. Lower fat options are available. For tea lovers, try also have Rooibos and Green Tea (pictured below).

Playing dress up

Yes Halloween is two months away, but kids will play dress up any time of the year. I always have a hard time finding good, inexpensive costumes closer to the holiday so this year I decided to buy early. Costco in Bellingham has an assortment of kids costumes for $14.99-$15.99. After mulling over which muscle costume to buy(Wolverine,Optimus Prime,Bumblebee or Ironman to be exact), my son chose Captain America.  Though this isn’t a crazy blow-out sale price, its worth a post because certain sizes seemed to be running low on stock.

Breakfast and a movie

These specially marked boxes of Cheerios come with a movie voucher for Cineplex theatres! Each month during the promo period has a different offer and in August the promo is 1 free general admission. I used mine to watch the ninja turtles movie last week. Based on the price of Cheerios at London drugs it works to a $6 savings in the cost of your movie ticket and you get free cereal to go along with it. Other grocery stores may have it for more or less or they might not have the specially marked boxes at all. Keep an eye out next time you do some food shopping.

I bought one of these instant cameras for my sister in law’s birthday this year and I loved playing around with it so much I just had to buy another for myself! The camera comes in white,blue,yellow, pink and black. Retailers like Walmart, Future Shop, Best Buy and Staples have these for $98-99.99 but the source has them on sale for 79.99 until August 13! If you don’t want to order through the Source website or you don’t have a store near you, some of the other retailers will price match as long as they have the item in stock. amazon.ca has the pink for $74.99. Some of the retailers also sell older versions of the camera (the 7 or 7s) for less but I think this is a better deal.

On a side note, amazon.com sells all colors for around $60-$66 BUT be warned that while it seems like they cost less, these ones actually DONT have the 2 packs of film that the ones here come with. The 2 packs of film could cost you up to $20 so if you add that to the cost of the camera, the exchange rate from USD to CDN and shipping fees for your parcel service (if applicable) you’ll actually be paying more.

Happy snapping! 😃
